MCTS Self-Paced Training: Styles and Animation in Windows Presentation Foundation

Lesson 2: Animations

Animations are another new feature of WPF. Animations allow you to change the value of a property over the course of a set period of time. Using this technique, you can create a variety of visual effects, including causing controls to grow or move abut the user interface, to change color gradually, or to change other properties over time. In this lesson, you learn how to create animations that animate a variety of property types and use Storyboard objects to control the playback of those animations.
